The day after

My legs (and arms and abs and butt and shoulders) were not pleased with me after yesterday’s double whammy, especially not when I dragged them out for 21K/13mi. I was really dragging a$$ through the second half, but got it done with the help of good friends urging me on. I’m thinking this is excellent training for Goofy.

In other weekend news, we went to our local Santa Claus parade last night and managed to squeeze in a couple of walking miles (yay HBBC points!). This afternoon we went to the movies to see New Moon again (my second time, hubby’s first) and then watched another movie at home. A relaxing afternoon is just what I needed. Time to start thinking about dinner.

Hope you all had a great weekend! (Do I really have to go back to work already tomorrow?)

Bustin’ Bootie!

Thanks for all the comments yesterday! I’ll be donating 5 cans to my local food bank this week thanks to you guys. Tune in next Friday for Round 2! A Toronto Girl Out West and 101 Things, 1001 Days are also hosting Cans for Comments – drop by and leave a comment to stir up some more donations!

This weekend I decided to take a break from the back-to-back long runs and opted for another kind of back-to-back. I hit the gym to bust some bootie this morning with Bootcamp and Spin classes. It was a grueling two hours, and I was surprised to discover that there were a handful of other crazies doing both classes.

What are you doing today?

TGIF! + Cans for Comments

Wow, 6 comments yesterday. I hope that means you were all thoroughly enjoying your Thanksgiving and spending time away from the computer. I hope everyone who has a long weekend is enjoying every minute of it. I can’t wait to get my own (measly two day) weekend started. It has been one of those weeks.

Just a note that I had planned on hosting Cans for Comments every Friday in December, but Mel was kind enough to mention it on her post today so we’ll go ahead and kick it off a week early. One food donation for every five comments left today! Mel is doing the same thing, so check out her post today too: Giving Rather Than Receiving.

Last night I had a cushion of time surrounding my Spin class so I took advantage and racked up a few extra HBBC points. I stuffed my Nathan Intensity Hydration Pack for Women with a towel and change of clothes and ran to and from the gym for a total of just over 5K. It was an easy way to squeeze in a little more activity and I’m going to try to do it every week.

Cans for Comments

A charitable initiative is sweeping the blogosphere and I’m excited to do my part. If you haven’t already heard about Cans for Comments, allow me to explain.

People leave comments, you donate food.

Every Friday for the month of December, I will donate one can of food (or other non-perishable item) to my local food bank for every five comments posted that day. Stay tuned and get on board if you can! You can participate for one post, one week, or however you like. Every little bit counts, especially over the holidays.

And speaking of the holidays, make sure you sign up for Morning Runner and Tall Mom’s First Annual Blogger Christmas Card/Gift Exchange!
